This recipe is a favorite of our CSA customers because it combines so many items we grow on our certified organic farm during the fall. This is a great autumn recipe, and perfect for Thanksgiving. Our CSA ends in November, and our CSA customers love the fresh produce all season long.
1 pie crust
¼ cup water
2 Tbsp butter or vegan substitute
(to sauté the vegetables)
1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced.
(can substitute with leeks or
scallions as well)
3 Tbsp fresh dill
1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
1 small head green Faro cabbage
cut into thin strips
(any green cabbage will do)
¼ cup ricotta cheese, or vegan
1 hard boiled egg, chopped
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
Pepper from a grinder
Few springs of parsley or dill fronds
Make pie crust ahead of time (using your favorite recipe), or use a pre-made one from the freezer. Make sure to thaw prior to use.
Melt the butter in a large skillet, then add the onion, dill and zucchini and sauté until softened (10 minutes).
Add the cabbage and ½ tsp of salt, and turn all of the vegetables together with tongs or a spatula. After 2 minutes, add ¼ cup of water and cover so that the cabbage can wilt down a bit. Don’t cook it for too long or it will turn gray; cook until you can easily bite into it.
Add more water if necessary, but when done the mixture shouldn’t be very wet. Turn off the heat and add the ricotta cheese, egg, apple cider vinegar, and salt/pepper to taste.
Preheat the oven to 400 F, unroll the pie dough and put the filling in the center, leaving two to three inches on all sides.
Then use the remaining dough on the perimeter to make pleats that will hold in the filling. You should get six to seven pleats. Bake the galette on a flat pan (parchment is a nice touch) for about 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and cut into wedges. Top with some fresh herbs (parsley) of your choice.
